HOW TO ATTACH NEW SKEIN OF LOOP YARN

Most techniques with this looped yarn is easy, but attaching a new skein of this looped yarn is super easy. When you run out of yarn, or need to change a color, follow these steps.

END OF ROW

At the end of a row, simply insert the first loop of the new skein into the last loop of your row.

Then continue knitting the row as before. Loop Yarn End Yarn Tutorial - Continue Knitting

MIDDLE OF ROW

You can also start new yarn in the middle of the row. In this case, be sure to loop the first/second loop of the new yarn into the same loops as the last two loops of the ending yarn. In this case, you will have two loops in one position. Be sure to pick up both loops as one when you stitch back across the next row. You would not want to end up with extra loops!

REMOVE TAILS

To remove the tails, simply cut them off with a scissor making sure not to cut the loops. Loop Yarn End Yarn Tutorial - Cut tails

NOTE: Some tutorials say to weave the tail into the project, but I found this is not necessary as long as you are careful when cutting the tail.
